Over a year ago I made this post about visiting Powerscourt on a snowy day in January. Now, going through my old SD cards I have come across the rest of the photos from that day. I am really enjoying looking at the icy lake. I think the muted colors are quite spectacular and can’t wait to see them in person again. Sitting in 30 degree heat, I cannot remember what it was like to be cold – and that day I was really very cold. I am winding up my time in the Philippines, ready to head back to Ireland in time for Summer. Hopefully, it will be a good 6 months before I am that cold again. After 18 months winter is, finally, coming.
Not too sure why I’m kissing a tree, but it seems like a good idea! Yay tree!
I love ice. I think it’s really deceptive. I have this fantasy of the lake being frozen solid and just having a great skate around it. While I was in Ireland we didn’t seem to get any serious white outs, not like previous years. But I was still massively impressed because there is no snow in Auckland at all so I never really grew up with it. I didn’t have a winter-sport family so we never went away to the snow in winter. That said, I did learn to figure skate – badly. That career ended promptly after two dislocated knees, but as I never really had any talent for it I am sure I was no loss to the sport 😛
On a happier note, I think winter is the most romantic time of year. It makes me think of snuggling and hot chocolates.
This is a really nice photo of Tiernan, but I wish I’d taken that paper bag off him!
So those are my lost photos of Powerscourt. I seem to forget about photos now and then. Always lovely to stumble upon memories. That does remind me to get out amongst it next weekend – the last one in Manila! Maybe forever!
